We got our 4th Canon Powershot now (going back a bunch of years), I think this is the best one yet.
Went a little bigger this time, but still "pocket-able"
Less buttons (making quick shots easy and the wife happy
), only snapped a few so far but they look great. Lots of optical zoom this time! Also the first camera we have had that is rechargeable (the other Powershots were AA batteries - LOTS of AA Batteries). Got an extra battery though.
I think we will be happy with this one.
I know it isn't exactly a photographers dream - but I haven't messed with an SLR for over 20 years (that was a vintage Canon Pellix). The only thing I've really missed is a 'bulb' setting (used to like to do long exposures, especially nighttime landscapes - wish I still had some of those pics). Don't miss the giant case on my shoulder at all
